It's Amphibian Mating Season! Keep a Watch out for Horny Toads!
It's the time of year amphibians start to mate and lay egg masses in our various wetlands. It is important not to disturb wetlands for the next 3 - 4 months. One dog running around in a pond can decimate an entire amphibian population. We have numerous native amphibian species here in Squamish including Red-legged Frog, Northwestern Salamander, and Western Toads. They all need wetlands to spawn in so keep an eye out for the gelatinous masses that cover and protect the delicate eggs!
